Michigan Edges Ohio State in OT Thriller

What a game.

After falling to Ohio State in the first matchup in Columbus, Michigan held serve on its home floor in the rematch to the tune of 76-74 in overtime.

Aaron Craft was rejected (albeit with a little contact) by Tim Hardaway Jr. as the buzzer sounded. Hardaway led the way for the Wolverines with 23 points, and Trey Burke added 16 of his own.

This was a must win for Michigan in the Big Ten race. The only way someone is going to emerge from this loaded conference is by defending home court.

It doesn’t get any easier for either squad this week. The Wolverines travel to Madison Saturday and the Buckeyes host top-ranked Indiana Sunday.
